An historic restaurant with a menu based on great ingredients, on constant dialogue with the salami and cheese counter and on real Italian cuisine. A truly original place frequented only by Romans where you can not only eat but also buy culinary products of all kinds and many many wines.

If you want to try something different from the local Roman cuisine I think this is the right place. Meat and fish dishes, refined recipes inspired by the Italian tradition, respecting it and distorting it at the same time. A set of flavors and aromas that you can experience in an enchanting natural setting. Fusion cuisine in a particular location near Campo dei Fiori. I particularly enjoyed the venison tartare and the coconut and mango millefeuille. High prices, but given the location of the place and the quality offered it’s worth it.

The theatre of Marcellus was the largest and most important theatre in Rome and completed in the late 1st century BCE during the reign of Augustus. The architecture of the theatre would become a standard feature of theatres across the empire and influence the façades of such iconic buildings as the Colosseum. The building project was actually begun by Julius Caesar but not completed until the reign of Augustus. In 13 BCE the emperor dedicated the theatre to his nephew Marcus Claudius Marcellus - son of Octavia and his daughter Julia’s husband - who had been his heir prior to his early death in 23 BCE. To make room for the theatre within the Forum Holitorium the ancient Flaminian Circus was demolished and, along with several other buildings, the 433 BCE temple of Apollo Sosianus was moved a few metres. Today, three columns, the podium and front stairs of the temple can be seen next to the theatre.

Piazza di Spagna, at the bottom of the Spanish Steps, is one of the most famous squares in Rome (Italy). It owes its name to the Palazzo di Spagna, seat of the Embassy of Spain to the Holy See. Nearby is the famed Column of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In the middle of the square is the famous Fontana della Barcaccia, dating to the beginning of the baroque period, sculpted by Pietro Bernini and his son, the more famous Gian Lorenzo Bernini. At the right corner of the Spanish Steps rises the house of the English poet John Keats, who lived there until his death in 1821: nowadays it has been changed into a museum dedicated to him and his friend Percy Bysshe Shelley, displaying books and memorabilia of English romanticism. At the left corner there is the Babington's tea room, founded in 1893. The side near Via Frattina is overlooked by the two façades (the main one, designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and the side one created by Francesco Borromini) of the Palazzo di Propaganda Fide, a property of the Holy See. In front of it, actually in a lengthening of Piazza di Spagna named Piazza Mignanelli, rises the Column of the Immaculate Conception, erected in 1856, two years after the proclamation of the dogma.

The museum space was designed by the architectural studio of the American architect Richard Meier. It modulates around the contrast of light and shade: the first two parts of the building, particularly, are governed by this concept: visitors pass through the access gallery, an area in shadow, to reach the central pavilion which holds the Ara Pacis in full natural light filtered through 500 square metres of crystal panels. This expanse creates an uninterrupted continuity with the outside world, and also helps to create the silence necessary to enjoy the monument in full. In the tranquillity of the acoustic isolation, it is possible to appreciate the calm rhythms of the decorative motifs; to attend to the procession passing along the sides of the enclosure of the Altar, made up of the massed priests of the Augustan age and of members of the imperial family, guided by Augustus himself; to revisit the founding myths of Rome and the Augustan glory that brought the empire the enjoyment of such contented times that the period came to be called the Age of Gold.

Pasquino is the most famous talking statue in Rome, which became a characteristic figure of the city between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries. At the foot of the statue, but more often around the neck, sheets containing satire in verse were hung in the night, aimed at anonymously mocking the most important public figures. They were the so-called "pasquinades", from which emerged, not without a certain spirit of challenge, the popular discontent towards power and the aversion to corruption and the arrogance of its representatives. The so-called pasquinades were signs and satirical posters that during the night were preferably hung on the neck of some statues (including Pasquino, hence the name) positioned in frequented places in the city, so that the next morning they could be seen and read. by anyone, before the police of the time removed them.

Superb, beautiful both day and night, as it is well lit. Always crowded with tourists, on the other hand it really deserves and the photos are very suggestive. In the vicinity there are many bars, restaurants, ice cream parlors and typical taverns. One cannot not pass. Unique charm

Le Guide ai Quartieri

Trastevere, sitting just down the Tiber from the Vatican, is a city within a city; an enclave with its own identity where the locals have generally greeted creeping commercialisation and ongoing attempts at gentrification with a wonderfully Roman disdain, flatly refusing to let such shenanigans impede on the richness of their daily lives. A strong sense of civic pride resides among the Medieval maze of piazzas and cobbled vicoli (alleyways). An old friend of mine, native born to the area, has even turned his back on following the capital’s beloved AS Roma football club and instead spends his weekends rooting for the Trastevere Calcio team (you can find them, should you look hard enough, down in the murky depths of the Italian game’s fourth tier). Not that this is an unwelcoming place. Far from it. Joining in the fun, becoming a part of Trastevere’s great bustling backdrop is easy to do, whether you’re simply sitting on the steps of the Piazza Trilussa or ordering a coffee at the counter of one of the area’s many bars.

Rione Monti, Rome’s first ward (rione). The neighborhood for the cool and young, the old and vintage. For those who want a serving of cobblestone, antiques and artisans, with a side order of beauty, great food and the best bars in Rome. Centrally located between Piazza Venezia and the Colosseum, this is The place to while away the afternoon peeking into vintage stores, paging through old books, grabbing coffee in Rome’s chicest cafes, chatting over aperitivo, and people watching at the fountain in Piazza della Madonna dei Monti. A tiny quartiere, it’s a haven between the tourist traps of Via Nazionale and Via Cavour, and much more Roman than the more popular districts like Campo de’ Fiori and Piazza Navona. This is working-class Rome, where older couples maintain tradition, even as young entrepreneurs open trendy galleries.

It is a trendy, dynamic and lively district that developed on Monte dei Cocci, a hill created by the accumulation of discarded Roman amphorae. From ancient Rome to the modern age (Aurelian Walls, Pyramid of Cestius, Fascist palaces), it allows you to discover the entire history of the city in a small space.

Located between two stations (Termini and Tiburtina), it is the university and cultural district par excellence. In the area, there are the places where writers such as Moravia and Pasolini sat, the University of La Sapienza, the Verano Monumental Cemetery and the Basilica of San Lorenzo outside the walls. You will finds lots of places where to eat and drink (as in all of Rome after all... 😂).

Museums

MAXXI is a national museum of contemporary art and architecture in the Flaminio neighborhood of Rome. The museum is managed by a foundation created by the Italian ministry of cultural heritage. The building was designed by Zaha Hadid, and won the Stirling Prize of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 2010. MAXXI represents an awareness of the importance of promoting the current creative expressions of a nation such as Italy, characterised by centuries of primacy in the artistic and architectural fields. The aesthetic tensions of our time are, in fact, the extension of the artistic and cultural expressions of past eras, albeit through radically different expressive forms. MAXXI’s mission is therefore that of promoting and developing this sense of continuity, projecting it towards the future.
